More information regarding convention fees coming soon!
This is a closed event, meaning it is only open to those that are active AFCA members that have purchased a convention registration. If you wish to attend the event as a non-AFCA member, please send an email to membership@afca.com.
While we do offer on-site registration and membership purchase, we highly encourage individuals to purchase their membership and registration by December 10, 2021, so that you can get the most out of your Convention experience in San Antonio!
If you would like to register multiple people at the same time on a single charge, please send an email to membership@afca.com with the list of individuals, their role on the staff, and their individual email address. You can also call our office directly at (254) 754-9900 and ask to speak with someone in our Membership Department.

The 2024 AFCA Convention will take place January 7-10, 2024, in Nashville, Tennessee.
Hotel housing will become available around mid-July. Below is an important notice regarding the updated hotel booking policy: “By booking a room in the AFCA Room Block, you agree to secure an AFCA Membership and Convention Fee, or obtain other AFCA credentials. Failure to do so could result in the cancelation of your reservation. A one night’s room and tax deposit is required when making your reservation. These fees will be processed when your reservation is confirmed. Payments made by credit card are subject to a one-time, non-refundable $4 processing fee. Charges will appear as AFCA Housing. A $50 cancelation fee applies to all canceled reservations. If you do not secure your reservation by November 30, you will be required to contact AFCA to verify your membership and obtain a reservation booking code.”
Convention attendees can earn professional development hours by attending speaking sessions in the Professional Development Series (PDS) and/or High School Coaches Academy (HSCA). An attendance verification system will keep track of lectures attended once you enter the code given at the beginning of each session.
For step-by-step instructions on how to enter your PDS/HSCA codes and print your certificates, please click here.
The required number of PDS hours is six (6) and the required number for HSCA is three (3).
You are welcome to donate online to our Foundation. Please click here to be directed to our donation page. In addition, you can make a donation by purchasing a brick to honor a coach in our Plaza of Influence. The Plaza of Influence is a tremendous opportunity for coaches, players, family, friends, or anyone to honor a football coach. Through the American Football Coaches Foundation, you can permanently memorialize the contributions of a special coach at the headquarters of the AFCA. A brick inscribed with the coach’s name is laid in the Plaza of Influence, the only place in the country where football coaches of all levels are recognized for the influence they have on the lives of those they have coached on and off the field.
